How is that throttle body? Is it worth the $300?
Who are you going to have tune it? You don't have any major mods I would imagine they were correct in telling you the base tune is fine.

Or did you not tell them you had mods? I'm confused, I was tuned using the xcal and when you ordered it you had to fill out a sheet with your mods and what special features you'd like.

I'm having issues with the tune and they keep telling me its not their tune.

I'm either going with tom, cause I'll need a tune for the manifold, so I might as well get the unlimited tunes.

Also might contact capaldi and see if they tune svtf

truth......you were just giving Aku crap for wanting an 11hp intake spacer but you've spent money on a wideband plus now a custom tune to gain maybe 2 more hp vs the off the shelf FSWERKE tune?

I would just go with Tom if I were you.

Also Aku, I saw on my Andy Taylors FB that he was already at 35 hours this week and laughed (cause I assume he doesn't get OT either) lol

I gave him crap about modifying a DD instead of buying spacer, you noob.

The car idles poopy on the tune.

In 2nd gear when it hits 2k on decel coast, you feel the car jerk, jump. Its hard to explain. Tune off.

It stutters under light accel, which may be tps, I'll know when I swap.

Every time I call, I kinda get the run around that anything has nothing to do with the tune.

Just little shit they say isn't the tune. Doesn't do it when I take the

How does it idle poopy? Too low, too high, idle jumps? Can you not adjust the idle using the tuner they sold you?

Change the tps that you think is broke then get back to FS. They've been doing this for a long time, if they say it's not their tune it's prolly 99% okay to believe its not their tune.
